Why? Well, thus far this winter, our family has been fairly illness-free. Oh, there's been a sore throat here or there, or one day of some generic fever, but that is it. And as our healthy weeks have stretched into months, I have become convinced that the minute I discard this flat, good-for-ailing-tummies soda, the kids (or, worse, Larry and I) will come down with the dreadful stomach flu that seems (if my Facebook feed is to be believed) to have been hitting everyone else this winter.
|Oh, ye powerful Flat Soda, deliver us from evil!|
So there you have it - the family talisman. I'm not touching it.
